Bridge Home from Hospital Service

Posted by: Jenny Carter on April,19th,2017

About our service:

We are continuing to deliver the Home from Hospital Service which provides much needed practical and emotional support to patients aged over 18 years old to return home safely from hospital on discharge. We accompany the patient home and provide up to three home visits for up to four weeks after discharge to prevent unnecessary re-admission. The Service is funded by Haringey Council and Haringey CCG for the next 3 years.

Who can we help:

We can help people due to be discharged from hospitals who meet the following criteria:

  • Residents of Haringey and aged 18 or over
  • Requiring discharge from Whittington or North Middlesex Hospitals
  • Give consent or have been determined that it is in the patient’s best interests to access the service
  • Would benefit from practical support at home but not including personal hygiene, domestic cleaning or laundry
  • Home and social situation deemed not at risk
  • Able to be safe at home alone with this service
  • No longer requiring acute medical care
  • Money available for basic amenities (food, transport, fuel)
  • At risk of hospital admission / readmission if no support is provided
  • Worried about returning home and / or live alone and have no apparent support from family or friends

Who we cannot help:

  • Non Haringey residents
  • Children and young people under the age of 18 years
  • People with complex needs

How to make referrals or contact our team:

Clients can be referred into the service through a number of routes:

  • Hospital discharge or as part of a period of reablement
  • GPs, social services or community health services
  • Integrated health and social care projects
  • Self-referral or family referral
